We had a frozen rain for the past 2 days and it took its toll on the city - 1800 trees put down and some 250 cars damaged to some extent. It took me 1 hours to clear the windows of my car and another hour to get it fully de-iced. I chose to look at the bright side of things and get some shots today, as the sun finally decided to make its appearance. These are the first (non family) shots with the A6500 and Sony 18-135 (not quite at the same level of the A7ii and 24-105, but not as bad I as initially thought).

Sad story - as the treees are concerned.

The images, though, are amazing! #4 and #5 stand out for me - very good light and excellent composition!

TFS!

#5 does it for me. Very nice. Maybe a square cut-out would make it even stronger. TFS.

@Muby - an interesting series indeed and I like the clarity of the ice on these subjects - crystal clear in fact!

For me, #'s 4 and 5 are the pick of the set - mainly due to the added detail of the plant underneath the ice but also for the more pleasing compositions and the way you've managed the subject in the frame.

Good to see someone out with a camera in these conditions and thanks for sharing.

Best regards, Neil.

Thanks for your comments. #4 and #5 seem to get the most attention - they were shot as the sun made a brief appearance and gave a certain glow to both the ice and the fruits (not sure what they are...).
